Subscribers to the Monroe Times and visitors to their website have been treated this summer and fall to an ongoing series of articles by features columnist, Dan Wegmueller. They chronicle Dan’s quest to restore his family’s 1939 Fairchild 24R and return it to flight. The restoration took place over the course of a year at the Brodhead Airport and involved a number of people from EAA Chapter 431.
The articles are published here in their entirety with permission from Dan and the Monroe Times. Pictures have been added here from Dan’s collection along with several airport photographers.
